the nation. this morning, president obama visited the memorial at the pentagon to speak about the legacy of september 11th. >> 11 years ago memorial services were held for americans of different races and creeds, backgrounds and beliefs, and yet, instead of turning us against each other, tragedy has brought us together. i've always said that our fight is with al qaeda and its affiliates, not with islam or any other religion. this country was built as a beacon of freedom and tolerance. that's what's made us strong. now, and forever. when the history books are written, the true legacy of 9/11 will not be one of fear or hate or division. it will be a safer world, a stronger nation, and a people more united than ever before. >> today, yards away from where the trade cen once stood the freedom tower is nearly complete. its importance has far less to do with architecture than symbolism. proof that a city and country can rebuild and return to the heights it once conquered. speaking in shanksville, pennsylvania, vice president biden reminded the nation as we move forward we do so remembering the

it with at black flag similar to the one used by al qaeda. president obama condemned all the violence moments ago. >> since our founding the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence, none. the world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. jon: so where does the story go from here. greg palkot is following for it live from london. greg? >> reporter: we're getting more and more information about the tragic events in libya as the day goes on. first who was involved along with ambassador to libya, chris stevens. the information officer there in libya for the united states, sean smith. as well as two other americans. possibly security. not to be confirmed yet. still be identified. they were killed in or around the consulate in benghazi that happened overnight. stevens was a career diplomat. played a key role in the tumultuous period in libya. the type of diplomat we come time and time again. president clinton --. this was
on the internet that rid cutes prophet muhammad. hillary clinton and president obama promised swift action. >> today we mourn four more americans who represent the very best of the united states of america. we will not waiver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act and make no mistake, justice will be done. >> the friendship between our countries born out of shared struggle will not be another casualty of this attack. a free and stable libya is still in america's interest and security. and we will not turn our back on that. >> meanwhile, mitt romney condemned the loss of american lives but he also seized on the attacks even before daybreak slamming the administration's response in what became a fierce back and forth between the two campaigns. romney then doubled down this morning. >> i spoke out when the key fact that i referred to was known which was that the embassy of the united states issued what appeared to be an apology for american principles. that was a mistake. and i believe that when a mistake is made of that significance you speak out. >> we start our

/11 is a work in progress. we saw today a decision by the white house and the obama campaign to have vice president joe biden mark the day in a way that was not political. it was just about remembering the people who were lost that day and commemorating the sacrifices people have made in this country because of 9/11. while both sides in the presidential campaign suspended their negative ads for the day out of respect for the anniversary, there's no ban on campaigning today. there's no rule about what you can and cannot do. mitt romney gave a speech today before the national guard association in reno, nevada, and at times it sounded like his normal stump speech. he did go out of his way to attack president obama for defense cuts that are part of the sequester deal. which incidentally, are cuts that paul ryan voted for in congress. that's the kind of thing he's been stay save saying on the stump. after a week and a half of bipartisan blistering criticism of mr. romney for leaving discussion of the war in afghanistan out of his speech accepting the normmination for president in tampa, paul r
11 years after 9/11, barack obama, unknown state senator with one daughter, 11 years later is the president in the white house, ordering drone strikes. we're kind of living in this future here. >> totally new place, 11 years later. thank you so much for being with us here on this special, special morning. so much more coverage, of course, many more moments of silents in the cnn newsroom. >> with carol costello, which begins right now. >> thank you very much. we are remembering the victims and the triumphs since the attacks. and minutes from now remembering the lives lost at the pentagon. president obama will soon be on his way there. there, he will be laying a wreath. they'll have a ceremony and also deliver some remarks. not only the president but the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, army general martin dempsey will deliver marks as well. >> we are also in shanksville, pennsylvania, where the final hijacked airliner crashed into a field after hero passengers fought back. vice president joe biden is there. we're expecting him to speak at the top of this 10:00 hour, an
obama will soon be on his way there. there, he will be laying a wreath. they'll have a ceremony and also deliver some remarks. not only the president but the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, army general martin dempsey will deliver marks as well. >> we are also in shanksville, pennsylvania, where the final hijacked airliner crashed into a field after hero passengers fought back. vice president joe biden is there. we're expecting him to speak at the top of this 10:00 hour, an hour from now. >>> first at new york's ground ze zero, a sign of healing. an overnight breakthrough that now clears the way for a museum on the site. we'll have more on that in a minute. poppy harlow is at ground zero. >> it is a beautiful, clear, crisp morning here. really reminiscent about 9/11 itself, a day just like that day. we spent the morning talking to family members. bob hughes, here with his wife, remembering their 30-year-old son, chris hughes, who was killed. he was a trader on the 89th floor of the south tower. his mother, for the first time today, carolyn, in a few minutes, will get to read some
officials -- this is what he said. >> translator: we assured president obama that we will be keen and we will not commit any such event, any such occurrence in our country against the embassy's territories. >> reporter: mohamed morsi was slow coming out condemning the incursion into the u.s. embassy, but now, yesterday and today we've seen him come out with more force saying that he will protect diplomatic missions from large protests. christine? >> you know, ian, wednesday night we heard president obama say egypt is not an ally but not an enemy, a careful distinction. how's that playing in egypt? >> reporter: well the united states and egypt are trying right now to feel each other out. it's kind of like an awkward first date, because before the revolution the muslim brotherhood was an adversary of sort of the united states and there was a lot of mistrust there. so, right now they're trying to build a relationship trying to come together, but the military the egyptian and the american military do have close ties, and this is one of the military officials in the uni
of america. >> we also understand that president obama spoke on the phone with a yemeni president today. shep, thanked him for his security forces helping to turn back the protesters at the embassy there examine reminded him of his responsibility to secure u.s. personnel in the area. we're also hearing tonight that u.s. officials are particularly concerned about potential violence tomorrow again in yemen in sudan, in pakistan, and perhaps most of all, in egypt once again where the muslim brotherhood has called for a million man march. the muslim brotherhood, of course, the party of the new egyptian president. >> shep: egypt has been home to some of the biggest anti-american protests we've seen thus far. now some questions as to whether the united states still considers egypt an ally. one message and then another out of washington. that's coming up. plus he was the man who broadcast those famous words, the eagle has landed. just hours later, neil armstrong was walking on the moon. now astronauts and friends are saying good-bye to one of america's most extraordinary explorers. it's ahead from t
that barack obama has had is this deep sense of ambivalence. they still like him and support him by a wide margen, but all those same polls show they are not sure they're going to get up and vote for him on election day because they have mixed feelings about his immigration policy, a policy that has torn apart hundreds of thousands of families and deported over 1.5 million people. so there was always an opening for romney and the republican party to take advantage of barack obama's support among latinos, which is an inch thick and a mile wide, but, bow, mitt romney has blown it, and he continues to blow it because he doesn't get the beat. he doesn't understand the first thing about latinos even though his dad was born in mexico. isn't that ironic? >> you know, simply put, you know, you write in your commentary that romney's comments are clearly absurd and so it's hard to take him seriously. did the rich white guy really claim to want to be latino because he thought it would help him win the presidency? well, that's strange, you write. being latino didn't seem to help bill richardson, the f

't president obama meet with netanyahu? but first, an urgent warning. it is about our nation's debt. as if the threat of going over the fiscal cliff isn't bad enough, it now gets worse. if congress doesn't reach a budget deal, moody's will cut its triple-a realitying by one notch, so can congress strike a deal? and avoid this downgrade? senator john thune is on the budget finance committee. nice to see you. >> nice to see you, greta. >> greta: so. moody's says they doll this. >> this is the latest warning we have gotten. obviously, this is not the first time that we have been warned. this is the most predictable crisis we have ever had. we know exactly how serious the situation is, the debt just crossed the $16 trillion mark. we are facing a fiscal cliff, come the first of next year, less than 4 months from now, at which time, the congressional budget office says if congress doesn't act, it could plunge us into a recession, likely will plunge us into a recession and could have unemployment above 9% before next year. >> greta: how you can let this happen? last year when the s&p downg
be beaten by al qaeda, by terrorists, by terrorism. >> at the pentagon, president obama lay a wreath in honor of the 184 people who died there. he says the long-term leg of 9/11 will be a safer world, a stronger nation, and people more unit united. he says this day will always bring back very painful memories. >> 11 times we have marked another september 11th come and done. 11 times we have paused in remembrance, reflection, in unity, and in purpose. this is never an easy day, but it is especially difficult for all of you. the families of nearly 3,000 innocence who lost their lives, your mothers and fathers, your husbands and wives, your sons and your daughters. >> the u.s. responded to the 9/11 attacks with the war in afghanistan. the u.s. service men and women are still on the front lines there today. u.s. troops in kabul marked the 9/11 anniversary with a ceremony. they are still in a war that is putting their lives on the line every day. a year ago i had a chance to go to afghanistan to talk with troops. some of them were on duty at the pentagon when it was hit. they shared their
a public service announcement paid for by the u.s. government featuring u.s. president barack obama and u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton. both condemning the movie and violence. it was an obvious attempt to calm things down. based on the pictures that we saw today it didn't. these folks were determined to come out. it's critical to point out despite the dramatic pictures, the people who sparked the violence still in the minority. they're the ones making the headlines. >> we wish safety to reza, and everyone in that region. here's what else we're working on this hour. >> the president and paul ryan pitch themselves to the aarp. hear what they told a 350 plus crowd in new orleans about their health care and social security. zimpl lines are stretching for blocks to buy a new iphone. we look at the cult-like following for apple. >>> it's any weekend from made-up languages to 1960s threads. the amazing details behind the hit shows. with less chronic low back pain. imagine you, with less pain. cymbalta can help. cymbalta is fda-approved to manage chronic musculoskeletal pain. one non-nar
. what you saw yesterday was president obama say he wants to up security at embassies around the world. right now, we know for the last several hours the state department, the pentagon, the white house, the national security community, going through the security arrangements at u.s. embassies around the world. >> barbara, if you can hold that thought, we're going to get back to you. we have a reporter who is live right now on the phone. hakeem al masmari. you are there. we are seeing pictures. what can you tell us. >> the security forces do not want this to escalate. as you heard, again, yemen knows if blood falls on the ground this will only get worse. it has not gotten violent as of now. if it does, it will only be for the worse. yemen knows if one is killed in this protest it could escalate. that is why they are using batons and wisdom in dealing with the protesters, though in the past many protests at this place were violent over last year or so. >> that's a real careful calculus they have to do here, trying to control the protesters, keep things from escalating out of control. at
